I am getting a knocking sound when pulling into a parking spot, when I apply brakes quite a bit to inch the vehicle forward. Is this normal? You cant hear it if you have the windows up, but when on the outside.
Thanks!

Is auto vehicle hold on? It will make similar sounds when operating.

Also, the engine itself makes a "horrid" clicking/ticking/knocking sound at times, that you cannot hear from the inside. That too is normal - it's the direct injection system doing its thing. It sounds like the sound at the 20-25 second mark in this video.

That's barely the beginning of what I've done with my Ascent. ??

I have not experienced this noise at all but then again I drive with the windows up 99.9% of the times.
Good to know this in case I do hear it so I won’t go into panic mode.

I saw your video before posting and thought that it could be that... but then thought... there is no way that a quality car maker would let a loud knocking just be part of normal operation? Right? It sounds like a junk car would make that noise :(
First Subie... so not used to that

DI Systems tend to be noisy at times. The quality of the car has nothing to do with it. ;)
